    Am i right in thinking that it must be circulating ok if your oil cooler rad is getting warm pretty quickly?

    Yes, because if it was not circulating your rad would not get hot.

    I reckon mines not on right, I don't have an extension bolt but a spigot and an alloy cap. I had the engine on for around 8-10 mins and the pipes and rad were cold. I might swap it back to the original bolt as it's the metal one on my. Vr

    Advice was to use the spigot and alloy cap.
    My original exchange bolt is metal so I *think* I can use it, but will investigate more.

    Its going back a few years but my mocal kit had a different centre bolt in it. You can use your existing cap, that doesn't need to be replaced, but the centre bolt needs to be a shorter one. The cap can be separated from the original centre bolt.
    I'll see if i have a pic of what you need.

    Edit: its the only one i can find, which is when i replaced the oil cooler seal. You can see the centre bolt with the oil circulation holes nearer the cap and the centre bolt with a smooth finish
